Today’s song is from the film ‘Hatimtai ki Beti’ (1955).

When I was very young and had just started taking interest in reading books and seeing films, I always felt that HATIMTAI is a girl’s name. This was because “Tai” in Marathi, means Didi in Hindi. It was only after I read the book “Arabian Night stories”, that I was surprised that Hatimtai was a Male name !

According to Wiki, Hatim-Al-Tai or Hatim-Al-Taeei was a 6th century Arabian Christian poet. He was adventurous and very generous. His name is mentioned in Arabian Night stories too. It seems a beautiful princess Husn Bano asked 7 questions and declared that she will marry only to whosoever answers these questions. A neighbouring king fell into her love and Hatimtai helped him find all the 7 answers. Hatim of Arabia was a Christian and a contemporary of prophet Mohammed, but they never met. He was famous for his generosity, wisdom, courage and hospitality. Later his son was converted to Islam.

Hatimtai’s story has always attracted the film makers from the silent movie times. There were 4 silent films titled “Hatimtai”. Then in 1933,first Talkie film ‘Hatimtai’ was made in 4 parts,each a separate full movie. ‘Son of Hatimtai’ was made twice and ‘Hatimtai ki beti’was also made twice. Hatimtai films had plenty of magic,adventure,dance and drama with humour. Among ” C” grade films, Hatimtai films were very popular. ‘Hatimtai ki Beti’was made in 1940 and 1955,both the films were directed by Nanubhai Vakil. In the 1940 film Sarojini,Indurani,Anil kumar etc were in the cast. That film was produced very lavishly by Sagar Movietone. In those days it cost them Rs. 1 Lakh 25 thousand rupees. The outdoor shooting was done in Agra and Fatehpur Shikri.

Hatimtai-55 was a partly coloured film. This was a period when the coloured films were still a novelty and not many films were made in colour. In fact most films were still in Black and White only. Today, after almost 65 years, when we see the old Black and White films, we get excited and feel that how soothing these films were to the eyes. The beauty of the Heroines seems more impressive. When one sees films of Madhubala in B/W and in Colour, one gets a feeling that B/W was much better. Of course, Nostalgia has a greater role in such feelings, I agree.

The film was made by Vakil Productions. Naturally the producer and Director was Nanubhai Vakil-the owner. Songs were written by Shevan Rizvi, except for just one song by Kaifi Azmi. The music was given by Nanubhai’s favourite MD- A R Qureshi who had given music to 18 films of Nanubhai vakil. Music director A.R. Qureshi (full name: Allah Rakha Qureshi , born April 29, 1919 in Phagal, in the Jammu district in Jammu and Kashmir state) was also a well-known tabla player and gave many performances on All-India Radio. He had left home as a teenager to study tabla with Mian Qadir Bakshi and entered films in 1943, sometimes billed as Allah Rakha. Among the the fantasy films he worked on are Flying Man (1947), Jadui Angoothi (1948), Sakhi Hatim(1955), Noor Mahal (1954), Hatimtai Ki Beti (1955), and Alladin Leila(1957). He gave music to 18 films, directed by Nanubhai Vakil.

In all he gave music to 40 films from 1943 to 1964. He even sang 14 songs in 7 films.

Shortly after Sim Sim Marjina in 1958, he left films ( except one film Idd ka chaand-64) and turned to classical music, touring with the famous Sitar Maestro Ravi Shankar throughout the 1960s and 70s as well as other musicians. In 1968 he collaborated with American jazz musician Buddy Rich, creating the album Rich a la Rakha.

He started the Alla Rakha Institute of Music in Bombay in 1985. His three sons, Zakir Hussain, Fazal Qureshi, and Taufiq Qureshi, are all tabla players.

A.R. Qureshi died on February 3, 2000.

For this film he had Damodar Sharma as his assistant. Sharma was one of the well known Music Directors of the early era films. Among the old era MDs, Damodar Sharma was different, in the sense that his songs were always unlike those of his contemporaries. When you hear his songs, you will notice that difference. From 1934 to 1948, he gave music to just 41 films. All his films were C grade films made by Paramount, Liberty, Ramnik Productions, Mohan Pictures and others. After 1948, he stopped getting films, so he worked as assistant to MD A.R.Qureshi till 1964.

Film Hatimtai ki Beti-55 had a cast of Chitra, Mahipal, Daljit, Krishnakumari, Kamal, Kammo, Kumkum, Helan, Heera Sawant Tun Tun, Maruti, Sundar, kesari, Niranjan Sharma, W M Khan etc. There were 4 Guest artistes also,including Al Nasir and Heeralal. With 5 specialist Dancers and 2 Heroines also dancing, the film had eye pleasing dances and good music too.

Actress Krishnakumari’s name appears here. She acted more in Stunt and costume films than social films. Krishna Kumari (not to be confused with the 1930s actress of the same name nor the south Indian actress T. Krishna Kumari) was born Rajinder Kaur in Rawalpindi, Punjab state (now part of Pakistan) on October 3, 1934. Occasionally playing the heroine in B-grade films including Vanraj (1952), Gorilla (1953) Black Rider (1960) State Express(1961) and Khush Naseeb (1964) she is probably much better known as a temptress or villain in the likes of Baghdad Ka Jadu (1956), Zimbo(1958), Police Station (1959), Lady of the Lake (1960), Jadoo Mahal(1962) or dozens of similar action, horror and fantasy films.

Her debut came in the film Bela-1947. Then she got film Girls School (1949), which also featured newcomers Geeta Bali and Shashikala, after which she appeared in Naao, which actually ended up in theatres first, releasing in 1948. Krishna Kumari’s career lasted 20 years, and during that time she managed to chalk up an impressive amount of credits, even if most of the pictures she made were not considered important by critics. She acted in 118 films.

The story of this film was………

HATIM TAI KI BETI-1955 was a costume drama set in the Arabian style mode. Produced by Nanubhai Vakil through his Vakil productions,it was directed by Nanubhai himself.The MD was A R Qureshi (Alla Rakha Qureshi,the famous Tabla player and father of Zakir Hussain,tabla maestro). His asst. was Damodar Sharma- in the 30s and 40s,he himself was a well known composer. The lyrics were by Shevan Rizvi( 8 songs) and Kaifi Azmi (2 songs).

It is imagined ( it is declared just before the credits) that Hatimtai had 2 daughters. The elder is Jahanara,the queen of Shahbad and the younger is Roshanara,who is known for feeding the poor and the needy always. The Shaitan(Devil ) and his assistant Badi (बदी) can not tolerate Roshan’s goodness. They come and poison the food she distributes. All,including the queen,become sick. However due to her goodness Imaan and Neki come and all recover. Then the Devil’s team poisons Jahanara’s mind and she imprisons Roshanara.

Meanwhile the neighbouring king of Turin proposes marriage of his elder son Salim with Roshan, but Jahanara wants to marry him. At the same time Salim’s younger brother Aslam also wants to marry Roshan, so Salim withdraws and Aslam is married to Jahanara( as Roshan). On the wedding night truth is revealed. Aslam is imprisoned but rescued by his friends.

Now Salim comes and is imprisoned by Jahanara. Aslam comes with army and rescues Salim and imprisons Jahanara. Roshanara comes and begs for pardon to repentant Jahanara.

King and queen of Turin arrive for the marriage,but Shaitan and Badi become snakes and bite Salim and others. Roshan Ara prays to God and due to her good work, Imaan and Neki arrive and revive everyone.

Finally Aslam and Jahanara and Salim and Roshanara get married.

Fortunately this is a video of the song and dance. The song has a good tune and is very melodious too. Enjoy….

“Qawwaali Ki Raat”(1964) was Directed by Durgesh Kumar and Santoshi for Durgesh Productions, Bombay. This “social” movie had Kumkum, Kamaljeet, Mumtaz, Deven Verma, Jagdeep, Mohan Choti, Murad, aruna Irani, Johny Whisky, Kamal Mehra, Parshuram, Mirza Musharraf, Tuntun, Balam, Kathana, Jerry, Jankidas, Baroon Van Hizi, Kingkong etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it and most were qawwaalis as can be guessed from the title. Eight songs from the movie have been covered in the blog.

Here is the ninh song from “Qawwaali Ki Raat”(1964) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Iqbal Qureshi.

This is one song from the movie which is not a qawwaali. It is a “remonstrating with the Almighty” genre of song where Kumkum is seen beseeching the Almighty to save Kamaljeet, as can be guaged from the pocturisation of the song.


Song-Meri bhi laaj rakh le sarkaar e madina(Qawwaali Ki Raat)(1964) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Shewan Rizvi, Md-Iqbal Qureshi

Lyrics

maula tere karam ka
jisko mila sahaara
majhdhaar mein bana hai
uske liye kinaara

meri bhi laaj rakh le
sarkaar e madina
mukhtaar e madina
meri bhi laaj rakh le
sarkaar e madina
mukhtaar e madina
meri bhi laaj rakh le

kashti meri bachaa kar mallah doobta hai
mallaah doobta hai
mere liye koi mere allaah doobta hai
mallah doobta hai
mallah ko bacha le sarkaar e madina
meri hayaat lele
kul kaayanaat le le
mallah ko bacha le
aaka madine vaale
sarkaar e madina
mukhtaar e madina

The movie had eleven songs in it and most were qawwaalis as can be guessed from the title. Seven songs from the movie have been covered in the blog.

Here is the eighth song from “Qawwaali Ki Raat”(1964) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Mubarak Begam and Rafi. Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Iqbal Qureshi.

The setting of this song is similar to those for qawwaalis, what with male lead actor seated on one side with his friends and the lady seated on the other side with her sahelis, with the two sets of friends singing in chorus, but here only the two main actors sing and the song in effect becomes a song of the genre of “expression of love”.

The song is lip syncd by Kumkum and Kamaljeet, with almost the entire cast of the movie available in the audience.


Song-Dekh kar meri taraf khaamosh ho jaana zara (Qawwaali Ki Raat)(1964) Singers-Mubarak Begam, Rafi, Lyrics-Shewan Rizvi, MD-Iqbal Qureshi

Lyrics

hmmmm hmmmm hmm
dekh kar meri taraf
khaamosh ho jaana zara
dekh kar meri taraf
khaamosh ho jaana zara
main fasaana jab kahoon
aansoo na bhar laana zara
main fasaana jab kahoon

jab main dekhoonga safina
doobne ko hai mera
jab main dekhoonga safina
doobne ko hai mera aa aa
main tumhen aawaaz doonga
tum chale aana zara
main tumhen aawaaz doonga
tum chale aana zara
main tumhe aawaaz doonga

doobne waale ko mushqil aur bhi ho jaayegi ee
doobne waale ko mushqil aur bhi ho jaayegi ee
aise aalam mein kahin
tum bhi na aa jaana zara
aise aalam mein kahin
tum bhi na aa jaana zara
aise aalam mein kahin

phir meri kashti nazar aane lagi saahil ke paas
phir meri kashti nazar aane lagi saahil ke paas
koi toofaanon ko phir jaakar bula laana zara
koi toofaanon ko phir jaakar bula laana zara
koi toofaanon ko phir

kaanpti aawaaz mein jab main khuda haafiz kahoon
kaanpti aawaaz mein jab main khuda haafiz kahoon
aa bhi jaayen aankh mein aansu to pi jaana zara
aa bhi jaayen aankh mein aansu to pi jaana zara
aa bhi jaayen aankh mein

zabt ke aadi hain hum
ashq pi jaayege hum m m
zabt ke aadi hain hum
ashq pi jaayege hum m m
hai munasib saamne se
tum bhi hatt jaana zara
hai munasib saamne se
tum bhi hatt jaana zara
hai munasib saamne se

“Gunaah Aur Kaanoon” (1970) was produced by K L Baria and Johny Whisky and directed by B R Ishara for Varsha Films, Bombay. This “social”movie had Prithviraj Kapoor, Sanjeev Kumar, Jairaj, Asit Sen, Sailesh Kumar, Johny Whiskey, Tarun Bose, Mohan Choti, Kumkum etc in it.

This obscure movie had six obscure songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Gunaah Aur Kaanoon” (1970) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

The song picturisation shows the hero (I guess he is Sailesh Kumar) lip syncing this teasing song to Kumkum. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the lip syncer.

With this song, “Gunaah Aur Kaanoon” (1970) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Hans do to muhabbat ho tum (Gunaah Aur Kaanoon)(1970) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

hans do to mohabbat ho tum
o roothho to qayaamat ho tum

khoob ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum
hans do to mohabbat ho tum
o roothho to qayaamat ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum

jaane gulistaan tum ho hoye
husn e bahaara tum ho
lab ye khile to guncha guncha muskuraaye
har phool mehke
har tamanna jhoom jaaye
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum

pyaar ki tum shabnam ho haaye
gaati huyi rimjhim ho o
khili chaandni ka
bheega bheega noor ho tum
khwaab e sahar se jaagi jaagi
hoor ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum

shaam si udti zulfen ho hoy
jaam si jhukti palken
aankhon mein jaise chhalki chhalki
hai gulaabi
thhodi si peeke
ho gaya hoon main sharaabi
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum
hans do to mohabbat ho tum
o roothho to qayaamat ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum

Blog Day : 3455 Post No. : 13858

 

On the first day of the year 2008, I mentioned that I was able to hold on to my previous year’s new year resolution for 40 days (introducing a debutant movie daily) and 125 days (YIPPYing a movie daily) respectively.

Our regulars, suitably inspired by my writeup, have taken it upon themselves to at least help me in introducing one debutant song daily in the year 2018. The very first song post covered in the year 2018 by Peevesie’s mom was a debutant movie viz “Kohraam” (1999). On the next day viz 2 january 2018, a song from a debutant movie “Kisaan Kanya” (1937) was discussed by Mr Sadanand Kamath. Sudhir Jee has lined up another debutant movie song for the next day. That way at least the “debutant” movie resolution has been taken care of till now.

That frees me up to concentrate on YIPPEE movies. I discussed the last song from “Mad Bhare Nain” (1955) on the first day of the year. Today (2 january 2018), I again scanned for suitable movies (with one song left). As happens most of the time, I found that the final song of many movies were not available. On the few cases where the final songs were available, the songs were so special that I felt that these songs needed to be held back for some special occasions.

That really limits my options. After scanning yearwise, staring from the earlier years onwards, I finally settled for “Ek Kunwaari Ek Kunwaara” (1973) as the movie whose final song was available and the movie movie could be YIPPEED for the day.

“Ek Kunwaari Ek Kunwaara” (1973) was a comedy film which was directed by Prakash Mehra for J J Films, Bombay. The movie had Rakesh Roshan, Leena Chandawarkar, Pran, Kumkum, Rajendranath, Janki Das, Jugal Kishore, Goga Kapoor, Lalita Kumari, Raj Mehra, Moolchand, Yunus Parvez, Ram Sethi, Sundar etc ion it.

The movie has four songs in it. Three songs, including the most popular song from the movie viz. Agar dil hamaara sheeshe ke badle patthar kaa hotaa , have been covered in the past.

The fourth and final song from the movie is chronologically the first song of the movie. It appears in the movie just about 19 minutes after the start. A new year party is in progress and the announcer announces this “item” number, presented by a new “item”. This song is a stage performance song. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle. The dance performer is Jayshree T (I guess), but Pran, who is there among the audience, imagines her to be Kumkum. So one can say that this song is picturised on Jayshree T as well as Kumkum.

Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

With this song, “Ek Kunwaari Ek Kunwaara” (1973) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

[Ed Note: The lyrics for this song were sent in by Prakash ji earlier in July. At time after reviewing the song, we had agreed to retain this song for the New Year day. At that time the video clip of this song was available, which had the lead in announcement of the song being in celebration of New Year. When we checked again two days ago, the video clip on YT is now disabled. On YT, we are able to locate only an audio clip of the song, which excludes the New Year connection. The video clip is now uploaded on Atul ji’s Vimeo channel. The complete movie is however available on YT at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2i4IwQWxFME . In this film clip, the song appears at 18:58 to 23.10, including the New Year announcement in the beginning.]

Today (30 june 2017) is the birth anniversary of Kalyanji (30 june 1928-24 august 2000 ) of the well-known Kalyanji-Anandji music composer duo. Or K-A, in short. I’ve written here on the occasion of the anniversary of several artistes. Composers, lyricists, actors, directors.  In fact most of my posts here are to do with some occasion or the other.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 35
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

“शम्मा बुझने को चली

Of the many colors of Rafi Sb’s voice, probably the most touching, and the most impressive is his interpretation of the emotions of sadness. Maybe, it be so that the “. . . sweetest songs are the ones that tell of the saddest thoughts” (from the poetry of Percy Shelley, that inspired the iconic song of ‘Patita’ (1953) – “Hain Sab Se Madhur Wo Geet Jinhen Hum Dard Ke Sur Mein Gaate Hain”). And maybe, that the genuineness and honesty of expressions that go together with the unfeigned and substantive voice of Rafi Sb, it simply makes us feel the true depth of this ‘sweetness’ – a sweetness that touches a very familiar, a very dear chord within.

When I switch on the computer and open the blog in the morning, I have two things in mind. First, I need to find a song that would YIPPEE a movie, and second, a song that would cause a movie to make its debut in the blog.
